Acacia Honey

Acacia Honey

 

This pale yellow honey has a mild, sweet, floral flavour with hints of vanilla. It actually comes from nectar from the false acacia tree, Robinia pseudoacacia. Native to the United States, where it is known as the black locust tree, Robinia pseudoacacia is widely cultivated in Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania, France and italy. Slow to crystallize, as a result of its high fructose levels, acacia honey remains liquid for long periods. it is a good honey for cooking, as it mixes easily in liquids, such as drinks or batters. Cut honeycomb is often placed in jars of acacia honey, since its clarity and pale colour allow the comb to be seen to advantage. it is often blended with other types of honey. 

Wild flowers and herbs are a great beautiful addition.
